Norman Oppenheimer lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, and strives to be everyone?s friend. His incessant networking leads him nowhere until he ends up befriending a young but charismatic politician, Micha Eshel, at a low point in his life. Three years later, the politician becomes the Prime Minister of Israel. Norman uses Eshel?s name to leverage his biggest deal ever: a series of quid pro quo transactions linking the Prime Minister to Norman?s nephew, a rabbi, a mogul, his assistant and a treasury official from the Ivory Coast. Norman?s plans soon go awry, creating the potential for an international catastrophe he must struggle to prevent. Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer is a comedic and compassionate drama of a man whose downfall is rooted in a human frailty all too easy to forgive?a need to matter.
